The online casino industry has seen immense growth in the last few years. To date, especially in New Zealand, people are still not fully aware of how it works and what they can do to maximize their chances of winning while minimizing costs. This article aims at tackling this issue by providing practical tips that will help any first-time player get acquainted with online casinos in New Zealand.

Check the Games offered in the Online Casino

The chances are that you might discover a very wide range of games if you visit the site that provides a guide to online casinos in New Zealand. As for the gambling types available at such casinos, they cover a wide range of options: from traditional table and card games such as Blackjack and Poker to video slots and live dealer casinos – there’s something for everyone out there. The selection of online games offered by these websites is huge – it is around hundreds if not thousands of titles that feature extraordinary design and graphics, great soundtracks, and impressive payouts. That means that having fun has never been easier than it is right now, so don’t hesitate to try.

If you are new to this form of entertainment, here are some features of recommended NZ online casinos which will be of great help:

  • The sites offer instant play so that you can start your gaming experience immediately. That means you do not have to download any software and wait to set it up before playing the games.
  • You do not require a credit card or an e-wallet account. You only need to follow the instructions and directions that will lead you to the free chips and cash prizes offered by the websites, subject to terms and conditions mentioned on their Bonus Offers page. Some casinos even require no registration. Another advantage of choosing this format is that it helps keep competitors off your back because they cannot find out what website you are visiting or how much money you are spending on them.
  • Instant Play Casinos for real money games are secure and safe from malware, spyware, and Trojans because you don’t need to download any of them. That is a great way of ensuring that your computer security system doesn’t get compromised while at the same time having fun.

Check your Bonus Offer

Many offer bonuses that are redeemable within a certain period or subject to specific gaming requirements. Ensure that you have read all the terms and conditions before accepting any free chips or bonus cash offers. Generally, it is advisable not to play with money provided by the casino unless you are confident about how they work. In reality, most websites have free play and demo modes for trying out different games so that you know what it’s like before deciding on whether or not to bet your own money. Free play mode encourages players to use fake money instead of their hard-earned cash; the only difference between this mode and gambling with your real NZD is that there are no rewards, which means that all actions are final. However, demos are exactly like free play but allow for certain actions like adding more credits to continue playing. Also, demo offers do not carry over into real money bets.

Watch out for the terms and conditions

Now, most online casinos abide by a set of rules to prevent players from being unfair to one another. That is why it’s imperative to read the terms and conditions before joining an online casino, as well as any other policies that that particular online casino may enforce. Most of these rules are meant to keep everyone safe while having fun, but if you’re not careful, some of these rules can also leave you missing out on valuable opportunities. Therefore, you should read everything carefully before signing up for an account at an online casino. That goes doubly so for people who are completely new to the world of online casinos, as they may not be familiar with all of these rules.

Find an online casino with secure payment methods

One way of making sure your details are safe when visiting a website is by checking the website’s purchase page. If you notice an ‘https’ symbol, then your details will be safe, as this means all data is transferred securely. Another way to check for security is by looking at how much information is required when signing up. If there are no credit card or bank details required, then your details are safe. Online casinos with reputable brands should have all their pages protected, so don’t worry if you can’t find one. A good tip would be to go for NZ websites that use SSL certificates.

Set a budget

If you’re not used to gambling, it can be far too easy to lose track of your spending while having fun in an online casino. When this happens, the experience can quickly turn from pleasurable to terrible and fast. To avoid experiencing such an issue while playing in an online casino, set a budget ahead of time and stick to it. By doing so, you’ll ensure that you can have a fun time playing in an online casino without going overboard with your spending.

PAGCOR SEEKS GCG APPROVAL TO IMPLEMENT SALARY STEP INCREMENT

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation said it has asked the Governance Commission for GOCCs (GCG) for approval of salary step increments based on employees’ length of service to correct distortions caused by its new Compensation and Position Classification System (CPCS).

In a letter to GCG Chairperson Atty. Marius Corpus dated February 22, 2024, PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Alejandro H. Tengco said the PAGCOR Board of Directors has approved the implementation of step increments but it needs GCG approval.

“Parallel to the thrust of the PAGCOR Board of Directors to prioritize the welfare of the employees, the PAGCOR Board approved the Implementation of Step Increment based on Length of Service, subject to GCG’s review and approval,” he said in the letter.

The PAGCOR chief said the step increment is only the first of many appeals that the agency plans to lodge with the GCG so that PAGCOR employees may enjoy competitive salaries and benefits comparable to other revenue-generating GOCCs.

PAGCOR received its Authority to Implement the CPCS on January 31 this year. However, majority of the employees were dismayed to see that their take-home pay decreased when they received their salaries on the first payday under CPCS on February 15, 2024.

The CPCS also caused distortions in pay scale since all employees were reverted to Pay Step 1 regardless of their years of service. This means that a new employee in a certain position gets the same salary as someone who has been in the same position for 15 years or more.

Chairman Tengco said the Step Increment appeal is only the first of many which the agency plans to lodge with the GCG to remedy the overall decrease in employees’ take home pay, especially for those who occupy the lowest rungs in the organization.

“We hope that the GCG will positively respond to our appeal so that all tenured PAGCOR employees will not feel shortchanged, and instead receive the compensation that they deserve under the bounds of the law,” he added.

A provision under the CPCS implementing guidelines states that “one step increment shall be granted to qualified personnel for every three years of continuous satisfactory service in the present position.”

Records show that as of December 31, 2023, a total of 7,057 PAGCOR personnel or 72.60% of the agency’s workforce have been in service for more than three years in their respective positions.
